Andrew Lorimer-Derham is not ambivalent about ambigrams. These are the contrived pieces of script that can read the same either way. To get a closer feel, visit the excellent Wiki page. Better still, to get your own name manipulated by Andrew, you can check out his ambigram YouTube here, and tell them DA sent you.
So in the spirit of such a revolutionary idea, our challenge this week is to hide a word one way, then another, in the same sentence. Short words are easy, but how will you cope with the 6+ candidates? My early bids:
TOMATO > It’s our custom at office to shoot a moth.
CANASTA > New zoo beats an actor with toucan as taipan.
ADELAIDE > Citadel aided crash when employee dialed ambulance.
As you can see, your hidden word – or name – can first appear one way or the other, so long as there’s both examples in one neat sentence. Kcul doog.
